we're off on holiday tomorrow. we'll be staying in a cottage in carmarthenshire for a week and then me and o-o are spending a week up north while m finishes off some home improvements. i'll not be posting for a while, the cottage doesn't have the interweb and the connection at my folks' is a rather unreliable clockwork affair. see you in a couple of weeks. until then, here's my gran (on the right) giggling with a friend on a welsh beach in the 1930s. look at those shoes!
